East Texas Man Killed in Accident Out-of-State
A Diboll man is dead after an accident over the weekend in Louisiana, in Sabine Parish.
It happened Sunday morning, and Louisiana State Troopers say the drivers of the two pickups were both from Texas: 29-year-old Tommy F. Tilley Jr. of Diboll, and 65-year-old Earl John Broussard of Baytown.
The investigation is ongoing, but so far, investigators think Tilley lost control, crossed the centerline, hit the pickup, then ran off the road and hit several trees.
The Associated Press reports Tilley was pronounced dead at the scene. The other driver just suffered minor injuries.
The police report says Tilley was from Diboll, but the funeral notice says he was from Lufkin. The funeral for Tilley will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 13, 2013, at Gipson Funeral Home Chapel, with visitation Wednesday evening from 6 to 8.
